Mick Jagger - Mick Jagger branded 'a jinx' in Brazil

Mick Jagger has been branded ''a jinx'' in Brazil following its humiliating World Cup defeat.

The Rolling Stones rocker, who was spotted cheering on the host nation with his Brazilian son Lucas, 15, at the Mineirao stadium in Belo Horizonte yesterday (08.07.14), has been accused by local fans of being a national curse and causing the team to lose to Germany in one of the worst defeats of the tournament's history.

But the 70-year-old British star's ex-girlfriend, Luciana Giminez, who hails from Sao Paulo, defended him on Instagram and told her fellow citizens to stop ''cyber-bullying'' him.

Along with a photograph of herself in a Brazilian jersey, the 44-year-old model wrote: ''Mick has been successful for 50 years, he's a good friend and GOOD FATHER to my 15-year-old son.

''He is suffering cyber bullying .... and I would like to ask you guys who do this kind of bullying to think before you do it.

''Even though it only seems like a small thing, Mick is a person like us all, and he does not deserve to be treated this way by Brazilians.''

She defended Mick after local media claimed every time Mick announced his support for a team, the team went on to lose.

The rocker, who is currently on a world tour and has offered words of support to whichever country his band has been entertaining, previously told fans during a show in Rome that Italy would beat Uruguay, but they went on to be eliminated.

Portugal and England also lost after he predicted they would win.

This is not the first time Brazilians have described Jagger as a curse.

During the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, he was accused of causing their team to lose to the Netherlands in the quarterfinals because he wore a Brazil shirt to the game.
